[00:00:31] <_6i> if i would want to run it from the build dir, shouldn't i have to set up PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly? and what about the game cfg files? (i suppose, i would need to touch the part after the "here be dragons" barrier..)
[00:03:04] <lynxlynxlynx> you need to touch PATH if you want to run it from anywhere (and don't want aliases or functions)
[00:03:26] <lynxlynxlynx> but since you'll be rebuilding often, it's easiest to have a terminal open right there
[00:03:48] <lynxlynxlynx> for the config, take the noinstall sample and you'll have less work

[00:11:37] <_6i> can anyone give me an example on when is using 'opt' preferable over 'fhs' for the cmake variable LAYOUT? (they seem very similar to me..) -> for what situation was 'opt' intended in contrast with 'fhs'?
[00:12:59] <_6i> on the path things: thx
[01:10:36] <-- brada has left IRC (Quit: brada)
[01:22:19] <_6i> hey guys, in the new release the tooptipdelay and the audio volume settings are still used from the GemRB.cfg, or the new gem-baldur.ini?
[01:28:15] --> brada has joined #gemrb
[01:28:23] <tomprince> _6i: opt gives a flatter layout then fhs. If the only thing in the installation directory is gemrb, then opt makes sense. If there is other stuff, use fhs.
[01:29:43] <_6i> thx
[01:30:00] <_6i> what about the cfg stuff?
[01:56:37] <-- kida_laptop has left IRC (Remote host closed the connection)
[02:01:09] <_6i> i think i found a bug in options persistence: in bgt in the audio settings in the character sounds part turning on the battle cries setting does not persist after gemrb restart (no game has been loaded during the test)
[02:01:56] <_6i> also, i've not found an entry for the battle cry in the gem-baldur.ini either
[02:02:39] <_6i> ..possibly just a papercut, but still..
[02:05:22] <_6i> also, in gameplay options the 'rest until healed' switch, in feedback part none of the toggle switches
[02:20:54] <_6i> the fullscreen variable in the gem-baldur.ini is not consistent with the one in the GemRB.cfg (later is used on startup)
[02:24:21] <_6i> in the sound options in the character sounds part the subtitles setting persists, but has no effect on the game whatsoever (character sound are not displayed enywhere..)
[02:26:34] <brada> most settings are not really implemented
[02:26:43] <brada> or are only partially done
[02:27:11] <_6i> i guess, i'll tell these things again, i there will be someone listening...or maybe i'll submit a bug-report..or two.. :)
[02:27:31] <_6i> oh, sorry, didn't see you answer :)
[02:28:05] <brada> kinda low priority for most of that
[02:28:18] <brada> probably wont get done unless you submit a patch ;)
[02:28:40] <_6i> however bug-reporting would be the adequate thing anyway..
[02:30:52] <_6i> well, maybe fixing such papercuts would be just the thing to get involved in gemrb development.. :)
[02:32:05] <_6i> ..i'll need to get agitated enough, first.. :D
[02:33:18] <_6i> ok, had it for today
[02:33:49] * _6i stopped being tiresome
[02:34:03] <_6i> bye :)

[13:47:06] <lynxlynxlynx_> found a bunch of patches from a debian guy from february
[13:48:02] <lynxlynxlynx_> i know i wasn't around much then, but why are packagers often so self-isolating?
[14:09:14] <edheldil> luboss was stuck on some licensing iissue, wasn't he?
[14:10:09] <edheldil> probably because they do not expect any communication from upstream?

[14:21:48] <lynxlynxlynx_> this wasn't lubos, but beren
[14:22:10] <lynxlynxlynx_> afaik we fixed all the fsf addresses and missing headers
[14:22:28] <lynxlynxlynx_> rpmlint didn't complain about anything new yesterday for example
[14:49:50] <edheldil> that was luboss - he was preparing the debs
[14:50:42] <edheldil> I think there was some another snag - something to do w/ ffmpeg, perhaps?

[15:09:22] <edheldil> lynxlynxlynx_: hmm, you are right, in the last message he mentions some unspecified problems w/ header files he does not remember, but other than that, it seemed to be release ready
[15:28:14] <edheldil> looks like Beren Minor's was _another_ attempt, but abortive. I tried to write Lubos a mail (if it was his address, it's not exactly unique), so we'll see
[15:32:28] <lynxlynxlynx_> https://github.com/berenm/gemrb/commit/5290d023d25eec39eff12bf41386ed62f9d33853
[15:32:48] <lynxlynxlynx_> https://github.com/berenm/gemrb/commit/7778c0945df91f0acdfe2b9728e73265a81ae592 MakeDirectories part
[15:32:53] <lynxlynxlynx_> these look useful
[15:38:57] --> brada has joined #gemrb
[15:44:03] <edheldil> yes ...
[16:51:13] <edheldil> Hmmm, Lubos replied back
[16:56:59] <lynxlynxlynx_> saying?
[17:01:41] <edheldil> ~~ that he has lost interest a bit, but maybe will look again and that it would be better if we had some dataset to distribute with the engine, so that it could be considered as a game
[17:02:04] <edheldil> ref. http://flarerpg.org/ as a source of data
[17:02:15] <edheldil> that's more or less the gist of it
[17:03:03] <-- WingedHussar has left IRC (Quit: WingedHussar)
[17:09:07] <lynxlynxlynx_> maybe we should just make a simple minigame
[17:09:23] <lynxlynxlynx_> dialog tic-tac-toe or something
[17:31:33] <edheldil> rather something showing what it's about :)
[17:56:45] <lynxlynxlynx_> that's probably more work
[18:04:20] <lynxlynxlynx_> does anyone use gemrb with gnome3?
[18:04:41] <lynxlynxlynx_> wondering whether that wm hint is really needed
[18:13:57] <-- brada has left IRC (Quit: brada)
[18:31:50] --> brada has joined #gemrb
[18:53:21] <brada> lynx: have we still not fixed the hold spell? or the always max damage bug?
[18:55:46] <lynxlynxlynx_> what's with hold?
[18:55:57] <brada> how it targets everybody
[18:56:01] <lynxlynxlynx_> the height offset was fixed partially
[18:56:17] <brada> there was also the problem of its effect sprite being too low
[18:56:18] <lynxlynxlynx_> dunno about that or if it is supposed to be different at all
[18:56:39] <lynxlynxlynx_> the hold that mind flayers use is not problematic anymore and it is the same projectile
[18:57:13] <lynxlynxlynx_> and max luck indeed is not fixed completely :(
[18:57:35] <lynxlynxlynx_> there's pseudocode now on the forums on what the original does exactly, so best to just mimic that
[18:59:14] <lynxlynxlynx_> oh, if you're testing with bg1, the hold spells may be using other projectiles altogether
[18:59:24] <lynxlynxlynx_> bbl
[19:06:19] <brada> ok
